of the candidates and barack obama? barack obama had by far the hardest media coverage. so they sit around and four years they claim the media is rigging the election. here is my question how did george bush get elected twice if the media rigs the election. >> jennifer: but you have to admit that somebody who is not affiliated with either side of the aisle, that look at this and the right is complaining, the left is complaining. where do they debt an honest assessment? >> campaigns that are not doing well, get bad press. if you run bad campaigns, you get bad prez -- press. just watch the news itself. unless it's fox news most of the coverage is very straightforward, and you can tell who is telling the truth and who isn't. >> jennifer: eric boehlert, senior fellow of media matters for america, thank you so much for joining us inside "the war room" this evening. coming up digging up dirt on mitt romney is a hard job but somebody has to do it, and that's brett ehrlich. he's next. jennifer speaks truth to power. >>the bottom line is we need an amendment. >>now it's your tu

in 1988 who was president? ronald reagan. lloyd benson had been in the senate 17 years, dan quayle, 7 years, that was about gravitas and the senior statesman versus the young new guy upstart. this time it's different because barack obama was in his 40's when he became president and even though joe biden is three decades older than paul ryan, that issue is muted a little bit. >> clayton: interestingly in 2008. then candidate biden, vice-presidential nominee at the time had a walk a delicate balance with sarah palin. he had to be respectful of her on the stage and strong a lot of people thought it was a tie at theened of the debate wherever you stand on it want matter, but here is a clip from that, we'll get you to respond to that moment. >> you voted for the war and now you oppose the war, you're one who says, as so many politicians do, i was for it before i was against it or vice versa, americans are craving straight talk. hey, if you voted for it, tell us why you voted for it and you you also said that barack obama was not ready to be command ner chief and i know again you opposed th

about that obama had to brag about in the debate another night. he can't do anything his four years. he's got to go back to the clinton era. the reason the clinton era office is prosperous it wasn't prosperous the first four years of the clinton administration. oh no. it was when the republican congress came in beginning in january of 1995 passing welfare reform, fantastic criminal law provisions, we slipped a tax cut in. that was the republican congress driving the bus and clinton signing what was sent to him. >> a.a. mom writes to you on twitter. it's not about the 60's. it's about the current g.o.p. response to the first black president. total rejection, they say, based race. >> um, the idea that what people don't like about obama is his race is preposterous! more white people voted for obama in 2008 than any democratic president in nearly 40 years. and by the way, where was all this love for blacks in high public positions when clarence thomas wasdom nominated to the supreme court? how about when colin powell was made the first black secretary of state or condoleezza rice the first

is a good debater. >> president obama is a very gifted speaker. the man has been on the national stage for many years. >> i have absolute confidence when we get to thursday morning, george, all of you will be shaking your head saying it's a brand-new race with 33 days to go. >> under the president's policies, middle-income americans have been buried, they're just being crushed. i will not under any circumstances raise taxes on middle-income families. >> now, five weeks before the election, he is saying that his big bold idea is never mind. >> this time he seemed just a little bit detached. didn't want to be there. >> knowing he is behind. he need to win. came in and fought the fight stylistically. i think he put the president on the defensive a number of times. >> the seats flipped backward, and so people were essentially on the laps of the passengers behind them with their legs up in the air. >> i have never seen anything like that in all my years, 30 years of covering the airline industry. >> you say you are optimistic that you and maria will one day be together. how can you find tha
